In his own words . . .

“I really believe Whitney Houston had it right (although I argue she wasn’t the first to say this!): 'Children ARE the future'. We have an awesome responsibility to lead our children down the pathway of success so that they may be solid, productive citizens in our society. After 18 years of teaching, I absolutely take that responsibility very seriously. I know that everything that teachers say and do can influence our youth – so you better make it count!”

In the words of others . . .

“Mr. Trigo does not just perform a normal concert. His evenings are an experience. Students are genuinely excited about displaying a powerful performance for the audience. Mr. Trigo is the heart of the excitement when you experience his concerts. His students are excited to produce a quality evening that wows the audience.”
- Brian Schillingburg, Landrum Middle Assistant Principal

“Jaime demonstrates the qualities of a master teacher. He understands that a one-size-fits-all delivery system does not work best for diverse student populations. Mr. Trigo, while planning for learning, differentiates his lessons to address all of his students’ academic, cultural and emotional needs.”
- Steven Speyrer, Landrum Middle/Ridgecrest Elementary Associate Principal

“The choirs at Landrum Middle School have been showcased at numerous events this year. They have received rave reveiws. [Due to] Mr. Trigo’s teaching excellence, students at Landrum love to perform, and do so at a high level of expertise. ”
